Hubby & I usually go to either the Brookside Diner or The Randolph Diner for breakfast & occasionally dinner. Brookside has a separate breakfast menu as well as their usual menu. Food is always good, staff is attentive & someone is always walking around to fill your cup with coffee. The diner also has dinner specials on the blackboard, besides... More

We had breakfast. The diner was clean and attractive with lots of dark wood. Dark wood can be overbearing to me in a restaturant, but this is New Jersey and that is the decor of choice. At least this was attractive. Service, typical diner, fast and efficient. The wait staff here was pleasant and friendlier than I normally expect in... More

Menu with many options and big portions. The staff is extremely friendly. Tuna melt, pastas and sandwiches are delicious!!! The place needs to be refinished but worth it anyway!

Generally only eat dinner but lunch is very nice. Good selections, good food & fair prices. Go for dinner about every 2 weeks. Been going there for years. Everything is good ! Generally only order turkey dinner and prime rib (weekends only) both excellent. You can't beat the specials which come with soup or salad, entrée and desert . Substitutions... More

It's good. You get a lot of food for the money. The people that work there are really nice. I particularly like the vegetable soup on Tuesday and Minestrone on a Wednesday. Someone else the French Toast isn't that good. I do like it but it is not a gourmet French Toast I have seen at fancier establishments. You can... More

We’ve been to the Brookside many times in the past and enjoyed their early bird specials which include drinks, soup & salad, entrée, and desert. Recently we decided to try it again. I ordered the fish & chips dinner that turned out pretty good. My wife had the fried chicken in the basket and was disappointed. The chicken was tough... More

Each time I drove down Highway 10 and passed Brookside Diner I noticed there always seemed to be a good flock of cars in the parking lot; therefore, I decided to stop in and give it a try. I've had the plain pancakes and the pecan pancakes. They are really good. Unless you are a huge eater, the short stack... More

The food is excellent, the service is great and John the owner is very friendly. There is never a long wait from the time you order till you get your great food. John is very supportive of the young people who come to his diner. Unlike most places he'll let them sit, drink coke and eat fries for hours. This... More
